The Art of Japanese Sukiya Gardens evolved from landscaping into a sophisticated art form and aesthetic experience as an important part of Japanese culture. It is based upon a profound respect for nature and the abstract representations of the natural world, which range from dynamic expression to subtle and sensitive forms. The Japanese garden in this context is an extremely sophisticated sense of beauty that embraces Nature in all its forms. Gardens are designed to conceal any form of human interference, which is the height of artifice. It is a retreat and a mind-scape.
